National Park of the Sierra de Guadarrama
The National Park of the Sierra de Guadarrama extends through the peaks of the Sierra de Guadarrama. The municipality of Alameda del Valle is completely included in the zoning of the Park, with the highest altitude areas being part of the National Park and the rest of the municipal district Peripheral Protection Zone. The National Park was declared in June of the year 2013 and "constitutes a representative sample of the natural systems of high Mediterranean mountain such as scrubland and alpine pastures, pine forests, melojares, peat bogs, with glacial and periglacial modeling, and presence of reliefs and geological elements singular ".
We are facing a natural environment with marked alpine characteristics resulting from the Quaternary glaciations, which enjoys a remarkable scientific, pedagogical and cultural interest. And it has extraordinary landscape and environmental values, such as important endemic species and relict species, as well as a set of ecosystems and habitats, unique in the Sierra de Guadarrama.
The recent declaration of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park represents an exceptional attraction for visitors who decide to visit our town. No doubt, what is considered the most special mountain in Madrid, is an ideal destination for scientists, hikers and the general public who wish to visit it or simply contemplate it from the bottom of the valley.
